COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Moo Joos combines the full body of a Milk Stout with the silky smoothness of an Oatmeal Stout. Lactose sugar in the boil contributes a full and creamy mouthfeel while toasted and flaked oats in the mash round out the beer with an oily texture. A deep malt bill builds layers of roasty notes with hints of chocolate, coffee and anise. A traditional British Cask Yeast is then pitched, which leaves us with a fruity, malty ale.

From bottle. Pours black with a big beige head. Lots of lacing. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, not too sweet, and very little bitterness. Smooth medium mouthfeel.

Looks like a fresh pint of black coffee, near zero clarity, thin latte cap. Smells of fresh cream, oily coffee beans, sweet honey, more coffee, really a pleasant aroma I think. Taste - milk and oatmeal as promised, aftertaste like a dark roast with half and half, the oats take a back seat to the lingering latte flavors - mouthfeel could stand to get beefed up a bit. Overall, this is a solid offering from a brewery that is really hit or miss for me, Id recommend this to any stout fan

Hollywoodt (239) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle. Poured a deep dark brown with no real head to speak of. Aroma was sweet, with a little chocolate and dark malt. The flavor followed this with some slight burnt taste and a hint of coffee. Very slight bitter finish. Just a little runny, but overall a good brew. Id seek it out again.

regspeir (199) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2011
Thanks to mnbearsfan for this 12 oz bottle via trade. Poured a thin black with a mocha/tan small one-finger head. Nose was some smoke/ash, chocolate, molasses and brown sugar. Taste was vanilla, oatmeal, chocolate and coffee as was expected, but also some fruit (cherries?). Body was smooth but thin with medium carbonation. Overall, a good offering in a style I like, but I have found others I like more.

MaltOne (199) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2012
Mandatory - serve at near room temperature, otherwise its character falls apart. Pour is still dark coffee brown with shallow, nicely laced, brief, coffee-cream head. Aroma is chocolate/treacle, vanilla/butterscotch. Taste coffee and near burnt toast with a sweet center. Medium body slighlty salt with a sweet dark toast finish, leaving a sweet coating in the mouth. Pleasantly drinkable. Original review of slight chilled bottle. Pours dark coffee brown with shallow, nicely laced, brief, coffee-cream head. Aroma is chocolate, treacle and nearly burnt toast. Medium body, a slight effervescence under the tongue. Initially sweet, then bittersweet chocolate, slight saltiness, and that near burnt toast finish that lingers on the palate. Overall its drier then then I would expect from the oatmeal/milk designation. I wanted to like it more.

benfergy (198) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - FEB 3, 2012
The Moo Joos pours as a black beer with relatively little head (for a stout). It has a rather strong aroma of yeast and dark malt. The taste has a good deal of balance, some sweetness, a hint of biterness from hops. Also I taste a slight amount of smoke. The palate is pretty good; thick and easy going down. A pretty good beer.

Smells and looks like the groundcover of unsaid northeastern woodlands. Indeed, it tastes more like actual dirt and wet wood than most - which is to say, lots of burnt oat effect. In moments, I appreciated the overstatement - but not a beer Id get again.
